It would be the same logic if the servers were based in South Asia and Aussies transferred to APAC servers and complained about the latency - I'd ***** them out too.

Most gamers know that many regions in Asia connect straight to the US and then go to Australia. All you had to do was make a level 1 character when the APAC servers launched to see how you performed. And I'm not saying you are a bad player.
there were a few things me and my friends wanted: Time zones, back when the apac servers were launched the population in American servers was ABYSSAL you could barely get anything done, so we decided it would be much better for us to play on a server that is closer to our time zone, plus on the Server list the region is called OCEANIA last i checked OCEANIA includes many more regions than australia and new zealand if you could pull your head out of your *** for one second and comprehend that fact we would not be having this conversation..

I understand the Oceanic servers are suppose to cater to the South-Pacific region but sadly they don't. Perhaps if the game was a roaring success still they might have expanded in the Asian regions but we know that day will never come. Rather than rejoicing at the fact our community is in a worse situation and yours is improving why continue to rub it in our face? The anger will surely pass and if mergers go ahead, as planned, then you can enjoy it without the malice.

Just look at that. The same number of people in fleet as normal(Before the APAC closure announcement), but 4 times the lag.

You guys are awesome.....

Who ever makes your decisions should be fired, cos he is bad at them. This solution hardly benefits people on master darnala. A merge with Dalborra is obviously the best choice.

Bastion at 11:45pm NZ time which is 9:45pm Australian time. Notice how there are practically no 50's on.

Master Darnala (after APAC Announcement) Mostly 50's on fleet.

Dalborra

Thanks Bioware. Killing Dalborra against the wishes of its population so Master Darnala can have... this.

*facepalm*

The LEAST you could do is be honest about why.

i am not rejoicing that you guys are getting ****ed over, i am rejoicing merely at the fact that i will have amazing pops and finally be able to pvp whenever i want, the ping is a non issue for me, it can be easily overcome.

For the people asking for a merge i will tell you why it probably wont work, the players on MD and dalborra would get on fine, like good chums but GD players would have *****ed and whined for transfers off to another RP server, if that was given youd effectively have players from 2 servers, MD has a much worse population than GD so at the end of the day you would only be gaining about 40 or 50 ppl more on at prime time. Which isnt really that big of an improvement.

i would point you towards the various other roles i play such as healing and merc dps, but i realize this is just a poor way off taking a shot at me. But anyway thanks for the view.

Technically the least they could is.. Well. Nothing - which is probably exactly what they will do.

I vote BW + EA sack up and do what they claim to; give their customers the best game experience possible. If for APAC players, that means merging the 3 APAC servers to just 1, then do it.

If there's a faster way to lose loyal, paying customers, besides snaking their toons and throwing them on a different server, I'd like to hear it.

Isn't it the other way around with MD & GD? That's what I was told in the past & the Server Forums seem to reflect this. Regardless I doubt they'll change their plans.

Edit: Nvm, you seem to be right.
